    I hope it's Omega Supreme, but knowing Bay it will probably be Cosmos or something...lol

    I'd been thinking ever since it was revealed the plot would involve the US Space Race and that Silverbolt would appear that he would end up a space shuttle in the film. This is nowhere near confirming or denying that, but I could still see it going that way.

    If, if only that wheel chair guy could be the bayverse Chip Chase, let him say either "No one is really disabled as long as they have courage!" or repeatedly yell "Courage!" while riding in the passenger seat of a Autobot.

    Dear God, that would make my day. :D

    It almost looks like John Turturro in the wheelchair...and the guy to the left looks a bit like Alan Tudyk who's supposed to be Simmons' sidekick this time around if I'm not mistaken.

    Could those be Simmons and Alan Tudyk? It's a bad photo but looks a little like them.

    EDIT- DAMN! Juicy beat me like I owed him money!

    Although Sky Lynx, Astrotrain and maybe Blast-off had space shuttle modes in the past, for now I'm betting it will be Omega Supreme.

    why would the autobots be talking to blast off or astro train?
    and more important ly why would a decept take willing take the autobots to the moon ?

    I think due to jetfire being a shuttle during past cartoon series of late this is the best guess, or even cosmos. I could also be one of the other ancient hunters (like jetfire) who has been on earth for years and years

    hope they didn't make Simmons permanently injured if that really is him & his assistant, but if they did decide to do such please make it for a good reason

    If the space shuttle is a Transformer, I say it's "Silverbolt"

    We've known for awhile that name was going to be used - it seems to be the only thing that fits now...

    i dont know WHERE IN THE HELL people are getting astrotrain or blast off from. if the autobots would be cooperating with this shuttle, why on earth would it be a decepticon?

    while i admit that blast off would be very nice, because that would make a GIGANTIC bruticus, i think the most plausible answer we have heard all day from this form is omega supreme. i think its rather fitting myself. but who knows if even that would be the case! they said they might slap on a female voice because of all the shuttles being refereed to as she's.

    Bay is referring the Shuttle to be a Male. That's why the KSC guys are joking because just like ships, Space Shuttles too are Female.

    Possible Omega Supreme although I don't think they could make Omega work as far as CGI due to time constrains.

    But I'm going more for Astrotrain. But like someone said; if the Autobots used the shuttle for transportation how could it be Astrotrain? A decepticon transporting Autobots to the moon? It would'nt make sense

    I think the most interesting question here is WTF is going on with security at NASA.

    There in a shuttle bay and we end up with surveilance pictures from their security system. at least thats what it looks like. Some is losing their job over this I would think as that place is supposed to be kinda high security.

    The only other possible excuse for these pics are that these were intentionally leaked.
